If you are looking for the best sea run brown trout operation in the world, you have found the right spot.
The Rio Grande is a vast river with low gradient on Kau Tapen’s beats, providing extremely easy and intimate wading. The fishing on the Grande can be done either with either single handed or double handed rods, swinging flies is the preferred method of fishing. Also located on the Estanica is the Rio Menendez, the largest tributary to the Rio Grande. The Rio Menendez offers sea run brown trout fishing in a setting much like a spring creek – where every year, fish over 20lbs are caught.
Guests will fly to Buenos Aires International Airport and spend the night in the wonderful city. Flights normally arrive in the morning, leaving a full day of city exploration, The following morning, guests then leave from the Buenos Aires domestic by the entire staff, upon arrival.
Kau Tapen contains 10 en-suite single rooms with some containing a single king, a single queen, or two doubles. The Lodge’s large living room has expansive views of the Rio Menendez and the Rio Grande Valley. Each wing of the Lodge has its own wading room for gear storage. Guests can take full advantage of the spa, jacuzzi, sauna and finish steam bath.
Kau Tapen’s season runs from January – April. The first season browns start entering the Rio Grande river system as early as late November. By January, fresh sea run browns are pouring into Kau Tapen’s beats. This early season offers spectacular chances of catching large chrome fish straight from the Atlantic. As the season progresses Kau Tapen’s beats fill with fish and you can be confident that every cast your fly is swinging over numerous fish.
